Campaign Involvement

Josh Cooper has been working on social justice for three years. He worked with Youth Empowered Solutions where he helped lead a campaign fighting for clean water access for public school students. Some other highlights of his climate justice work include speaking at a large climate strike and starring in the educational film #BlackSummer19. Josh plans to continue doing environmental work. Josh would like to get more people of color involved in environmental justice. He knows that representation is a key part of climate justice. 

Climate change is important to Josh because the environment needs help and it’s the youths’ job to lead this initiative for a better climate. He joined the Fellowship because he wants to start creating change in the future. Josh attends Phillip O. Berry Academy of Technology. He also is a part of the football team where he tries to shift views on climate for young Black men. Josh loves the beach and pickup basketball games.
